No not at all, I enjoy hearing people's opinions. :)

  I can see where you're coming from. Paul wouldhave been thebestto reveal it, even over Tom or Eric because George was best known for beingin The Beatles. But I don't really think it matters who reveals the star, as long as he has one, it is something more to remember him by.

I found this video of the day of the ceremony, I thought it was great. I miss George so much :(, he truly deserved this.

Lovely clip, mysweetgeorge. I so adore Olivia. Wonderful snippets from Eric Idle and Tom Hanks as well.

I find it interesting, after all this speculation, that the clip clearly shows that Paul was not one of those to reveal the star. It was Dhani and the guy to Olivia's right- help? Anyway, very cool to see.

Whoa!  The day I was there, I was too far to see who was actually revealing the star.  I did think it was Paul but I guess it wasn't, then??  Sorry for all the points I made earlier, though.   :D :X

I don't think there's any need to apologize. The only shot I saw of this previously was a tight shot, where you can't see who's actually pulling. As the clip shows, Paul was crouching (standing) over the shoulder of the guy actually pulling, so you could have thought it was him from a distance-- but it wasn't. The guy to Olivia's right I'm guessing might be someone on the awards committee, as he presents the plaque immediately afterward?

Anyway, interesting to see how all the speculation went. :)


ADDED: Just viewed it again, and it's clearly the MC guy. He appears to be helping Olivia pull the string, so it was actually her and Dhani who revealed the star, and the MC helped get the cover out of the way and hand it off to the helper bee.

Thanks, Hari. :)

I went back through my photos to see if I could find anything relating to that star "cover" thing.  Nothing too interesting, but I do have a random pic of the cover being packed away.
